The Oval Kumquat (Fortunella margarita) with its elongated fruits is without doubt the most common Kumquat. Originally, it is native to South- China. Its characteristic features: small, compact and intensely branched shrubs with tapered, dark green, glossy leaves. It produces many small (1-1,5 cm), white, intensely fragrant flowers. The fruits are egg-to pear-shaped, 3-4 cm long, 1.5-2.5 cm thick and have a weight of 20-30g. The peel has a light- to intense orange colour. They are eaten on the whole, with its sweet peel and sour fruit pulp. The ripening of fruits continues throughout the winter so that for a classically early harvest in late winter Kumquats require a bright, not too cold winter quarter. Otherwise, the harvest will shift to spring or early summer. The Oval Kumquat is quite hardy and can stay outdoor for most of the year. During winter, however, they can not be left outside.
